Chapter Summary

Many North American writers had been influenced by the Latin American cultural studies work coming out of Chile, Cuba, and elsewhere in the 1960s and 1970s. Jewish families on the East End pooled resources to form the Jewish Association United Brethren, establish the Temple Adas Israel, buy land for a Jewish Cemetery, and sponsored a variety of cultural, social and educational programs. The 19th and early 20th Century European immigrants quickly established formal networks and institutions that resulted in powerful sources of social and cultural capital. The Klanran candidates for local office and tried to fuse its anti-immigrant, racist ideology into mainstream Americanism through its support for popular law and order campaigns, especially around prohibition. The impact of the Coalition resonated throughout the campus and the community: On campus, the College did promote the first African American custodial to the position of Maintenance worker.
